Orlando and Houston did a absolutely terrible job lmao is pretty much my main takeaway.

Nice for Chicago and Denver tho and Danny " we almost did it " Ainge did it again.

I'm sure Fournier will make a massive impact Laughing Laughing

Miami looking to get Aldridge too? Great squad if everyone stays healthy. Bam, Bjelica, Ariza, Butler, Hero, Robinson, playoff Igoudala, Dipo, Dragic and Nunn is already pretty good but add LMA for 20-25 minutes a night. I jump them up to 3rd best team in the East despite their record.

Playoff Rondo to the Clippers. Also a great move, running him out there with Leonard, George, Batum and Ibaka is a really solid 5. But if it doesnt work, I say this Clippers thing is over.

yea i'm liking Miami now too... they've just been a different team with Jimmy out there, he really is their guy. They have enough pieces now to be a threat in the East playoffs.

agree on Clippers as well. They should at least be making the West finals and putting in good playoff performances as a team for Kawhi and PG13 to stay on

While checking last night's results I noticed this:
Zion played 39 mins and had a +13. (And had a crazy good game in the loss to the Nuggets).
Ingram played 37 mins and had a -29.

Is that the wildest plus/minus stat ever (considering it's two starters who both played big minutes)?

watching Porzingis last night without Doncic in the team, i'm convinced they'll never work together. When Doncic plays everything revolves too much around him. Porzingis needs to have the ball more to get the feel of the game and get going. So Porzingis' ideal co-star probably needs to be a wing and not a ball-centred guard to get the best version of him.

How cool

Harden, Kyrie, Durant, Aldridge, Griffin, and DeAndre Jordan all on the same team Laughing

Of course, the first 4 there are the only ones worth really writing home about, but I mention the other ones because of their name. Imagine this was 2015 or 2016...oh my.

Anyway, I give up with the Bucks. Another disappointing year incoming Sad

3 of those guys are irrelevant lol.

People losing their minds over Aldridge when he's been net negative for like 2 years and the Spurs literally paid him to f off is hilarious.

Dunno why people overreact to buyout market guys, there's a reason they've been bought out.

Joe Johnson in Miami a few years back is probably the best case scenario but more often than not they have at best minimal impact and often it's less than that.

Read the first line of my post and then responded. I literally say in the second sentence that only the first four I listed were actually worth writing home about Laughing I just listed all of them because the power of the name. Writing it all out like that would be wild to someone from a couple years ago.

Obviously Aldridge, Griffin, and DJ don't have much left in the tank.

Still, Aldridge is a good player and the fact that Nets have him for as little as they have him is crazy. But I guess it's more fashionable to argue he's a negative on a team. I'd rather have him than Drummond

Well buyouts are not always because they can't be used.

Often they're bought out because they're too useful and not in the future plans of a team.

That said. League dumb as hell. Everyone jumping to same two teams rofl

Dmize out here fuming. Still remember how he said Drummond was a better talent than AD.

Nah i was gonna post about it anyway, all i saw all day on Twitter about how it's unfair etc lol.

It's all about names for these people and think pts and rebounds averages dictate impact.

Reality is Joe Harris is gonna be more impactful than all those guys but that doesn't sell.

Drummond is a presence in the interior at least, i think it's a good move by Lakers

The kind of move you make when you are genuinely chasing the ring, overall it improves the squad unlike the Nets, now they become a real head scratcher to defend

he's another body sure, will pull down a few more rebounds here and there and get Lakers some second-chance opportunities... but in the playoffs how much can you trust him???

He hasn't been great but it's also clear that the Spurs have been moving away from LaMarcus and de-emphasizing his role. Is that partially his fault? Yeah, the guy needs to shoot more threes and although he's gotten better at it, he clearly still doesn't feel the need to reinvent himself as a Brook Lopez-esque player, and that's on him.

But the Spurs were moving away from him and he was aware of that.

I'll judge Aldridge when we see him healthy and on a team he wants to be on. I don't think anyone believes he's a superstar anymore because he's not. However, he will give Nets a lot of good minutes, especially relative to the contract he's on. Every team in the league would have taken LaMarcus on a buyout.

Yeah, Jokic has been in the convo all season.

We know ElG only gets basketball news from Cowherd, Broussard, Marcellus and other boneheads, which would explain the lack of Jokic.

That said. Booker as MVP Laughing fuck outta here

Hard to find anyone more capable at defending Embiid and Jokic in the league.

He’s got the best defensive hands for any Center out there. It’s not often you see a Center be top 3 in steals.

He might be a bad fit against certain teams. But then again, we might just make life miserable on other teams by being big.

I see those stats and I think Drummond might benefit from having a playmaker giving him easy looks.

There’s a reason JaVale has like 20% higher FG% last year and Dwight almost 10%. LeBron will really gel with Drummond, who has never played with a great passer before, from my recollection. And now he’s gonna be playing the best ever.

what? why are you lying like this? you are talking as if you have a memo log of my online activity... just because i may have posted a video or reference of those guys here once doesn't mean that's where i get all my media information from

And why not Booker? He is clearly the best player on his team that sit second in the almighty West. Sure, CP3 is the glue that makes everything look better, but Booker is their offensive spark, the closer and THE GUY on that team. You might as well just say you haven't watched enough Suns games this season, if any.
